AutoText

This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

About AutoText

AutoText is an addon for managing whispers, tells and other messages that you send frequently. You can use it for strats, raid assignments, vent info and many other things.

Each message can be assigned to a category to let you group up messages in whatever way you like. Examples might include Officer, Raid, General, etc. The category is used to group related messages in the configuration UI and in the LibDataBroker tooltip.

Feature ideas or requests should be filed as Tickets on the CurseForge Project Site

Slash Commands

The following slash commands are available:

Slash Command Description
/autotext Pops up the configuration screen used to create and manage messages
/at Same as /autotext
/atsay name Sends the message with the given shortcut name
/atlist Lists all configured messages

Message Targets

Each message can be configured to be sent to one of many different
targets:

Target Equivalent WoW Slash Command
SAY /say
WHISPER /w (will popup a dialog asking for the target of the whisper)
YELL /y
PARTY /p
GUILD /g
OFFICER /o
RAID /ra
RAID_WARNING /rw
BATTLEGROUND /bg
REPLY /r (will reply to the last person who sent you a whisper)
TARGET Sends the message to your current target
GROUP Automatically determines the correct group (Battleground, Raid or Party).

Token substitution

In the message text, you can use a special token and the addon will replace it with the appropriate
text. The format of the token is:

${unitid}

Where unitid is any of the valid unitids from the WoW API.
See http://www.wowwiki.com/UnitId for more information.

Examples:

${target}
${mouseover}
${focus}
